With only six weeks of school left, there is so much more procrastination that can take place. Whether you prefer documentaries, TV shows, or comedy routines, take a look at our list below of the best shows and movies to binge on Netflix right now!
ICarly is a classic Nickelodeon TV show beloved by all college students who grew up in the 2000s. Netflix has just released the first two seasons, and with a possible show reunion coming up, you will definitely want to catch up on this throwback. Carly and her crazy brother Spencer, along with friends Sam and Freddie, get into some pretty crazy antics on the web show they produce every week. Take a look at this option if you are looking for a walk down memory lane.
Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admission Scandal
This documentary covers the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal, where 33 parents of college applicants were accused of paying over $25 million to a man named Rick Singer to bribe college coaches and increase exam test scores. Celebrities like Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty and had to serve time in jail. You may have read the stories, but this documentary provides an inside scoop to the real phone calls recorded from Singer’s phone.
Behind Her Eyes
This twisted thriller will throw you for loop after loop. Louise, a single mom, starts having an affair with her psychiatrist while simultaneously befriending his wife, Adele. This slow burner is worth the watch as you slowly start to piece together what the real truth is. This limited series requires serious attention for each episode, so if you are looking for any easy watch, this might not be for you. If you want a psychodramatic cliffhanger that you can binge in a few days, this is the one. Most shows have disappointing endings, but this show has kept me thinking for days.
I Care a Lot
This morbidly funny movie is sure to get you thinking. In this film, Golden Globe-winning Rosemund Pike plays Marla Grayson, a scammer who earns her fortune through scamming courts to give her legal guardianship of elders. Years into her practice, she makes the ultimate mistake and finds herself becoming the enemy of the wrong person. This dark movie has very silly moments, but overall, the plot is very enticing and keeps you at the edge of your seat.
If you are in the mood for a raunchy and often satirical comedy, BoJack Horseman will meet all of your demands. While this show has been out since 2014 and ended in 2020, there are six seasons filled with good times, dark emotional moments, and everything else a cartoon horse could experience. BoJack is neither the hero nor villain in this story of his life of fame.
